Mad Mary

By chase
Took a trip to the Steampunk event at Lincoln Castle yesterday with AlleyCatz ,it was great to get out & meet some old friends & put a couple of names to epz faces too.
Such a lovely day,clear blue skies & some nice harsh light,so places for photography were very limited !!

This is Mad Mary,one of the inmates of Lincoln Castle Prison/asylum,she is quite bonkers & wears a straight jacket most of the time.Threatening to send her to Australia on a big ship sends her loopy & off she goes into a corner to sulk !

This Lady is actually one of the folk from the Castle who dress up & get into character ready for the tourists to visit.I thought she did that rather well !
So whilst she isn't a Steampunk,I couldn't resist her face Wink

Thanks for dropping by.

Wow -- nicely captured. This woman plays the role quite well. Encountering her, my first thought would be -- send her off to Oz.
